Excerpt: What is a Miyake Event? – its more like a cosmic explosion that may last weeks, months, or even years. They have demonstrated in the UQ study that they are not associated with solar flares. They are huge bursts of cosmic radiation, and have occurred approximately once every thousand years but what causes them is not yet clear. The 993-994 CE spike was a rapid increase in carbon-14 content from tree rings, and followed the 774-775 CE carbon-14 spike.
What happened in 774 CE? In the year 774 an enormously powerful blast of matter and energy from space slammed into Earth. The worst recorded solar storm in history was the 1859 solar storm, better known as the Carrington Event. It was powerful enough to cause sparks and fires in telegraph machines and caused power grid failures. The 774 event was so powerful that the storm started multiple forest fires. A study published in Nature journal where a group of Japanese researchers analysed tree ring data to find out about the existence of this ‘solar storm’. According to it, this particular event took place between 774-775 CE. It is estimated that its intensity was 10 times higher than the Carrington event. The evidence was found in Cedar trees in Japan which all show a huge spike in carbon-14. SNIP……….
